border crossings: creating PARALLEL histories

march 28 - june 15, 2019

border crossings: creating parallel histories is an interactive community engaged arts project that uses the transformative power of art to challenge preconceived ideas around both literal and metaphorical boundaries. Visitors are invited to share their stories and experiences with crossing borders - geographical, linguistic, spiritual and personal. Through creativity and collaboration, we can recognize and respect the struggles that are a part of many border crossings, and learn to appreciate that sometimes the most incredible creativity lies at the edges of things.
